Pete Ellison is a multi-media visual artist, designer & music producer from Portland, OR. At the heart of his aesthetic is a bright, iconic illustration style expressing his love of “kawaii” pop culture, mascot characters and street art. With a goal to cover the world in "cute", his work includes brightly colored apparel and accessories, prints, fine art objects, original music tracks, and buzzing digital stickers for various chat applications. Working tirelessly to vend at parties and conventions, his bright and crazy t-shirts have quickly become staple attire for ravers and convention goers in the Northwest, with his limited edition items highly sought after by collectors. When not designing, he can be found rocking the decks at anime convention stages or exploring cities to find the latest sweet treats and cool graffiti.
